355ml bottle pours a yellowish straw color with a small white head that leaves a little lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains with some pale malts. Taste is a light grassy bitterness with a light malty sweetness. Light body and carbonation. Best Gluten Free beer, ’cause as I was drinking it, I had no idea that it was a GF brew.

Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cereal), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with light notes of DMS and soap. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. I really dreaded trying this because...well...for one, it’s Widmer. Secondly, it’s a gluten-free beer, and gluten-free beers almost always suck. Hard. But just as Redbridge is surprisingly one of the more passable GF examples (from an even worse brewery), this beer is better than the bulk of its brethren. It’s toasty, it’s hoppy, it’s flaws are minor, and it’s...believe it or not...drinkable. In fact, if you didn’t tell me it was GF, I probably wouldn’t even know. No, it’s not going to compete with good lagers out there...this is basically on the level of Full Sail Session Lager or something like that, but still...good grief, you can do a LOT, LOT worse in this field (Sprecher Shakparo, anyone???). If I had to go GF, I would have no problem having one of these once in awhile (when I wasn’t drinking wine instead). The Omission website says these brews may contain gluten, since they *are* brewed with barley and such. So...ummm....hmmm.

This is a lager so maybe I am being too unkind, but lots of cereal and bread. Not much else going on. Pretty boring. I didnt get much hops, sorry. I would have liked to have tried a Bud after this - I am sure this would be better because it had a bit more body, but otherwise, not much going for it.

Bottle. Yellow piss color. Taste is crispt and more flavoorful then your standard macro. Some lemon. I’d get it cause of the cool label if anything

Fatehunter (1401) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. Clear, golden color with two fingers of head. Faint smell of dry grain. Mild bitter taste, slightly metallic, watery overall. Crisp and light body, low to moderate carbonation. For a light, gluten-free lager I applaud the result. By all appearances it is a superior product to most other light lagers, but it still doesn’t make me want another one.

Not as good as the Omission pale ale, but then, why would you pick a plain lager over an APA in any event? Yellow, clear, light flavor. For what it does, it’s an accomplishment--drinkable gluten free beer. Not offensive. (bottle at the Ale Jail backyard beer festival, 2012)

alexanderj (3339) - Branson, Missouri, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle; clear dull gold with a medium white head. Aroma of grain and corn. Flavor was crisp and mild. Not much sweetness or normal adjunct type flavor from a premium lager. Wouldn’t really know its gluten free. A mindless, but ok beer

Decent floral hop aroma coming off a clear pale yellow body with a soapy white head. The flavor is very light in the style of a light lager (Tsingtao came to mind), but fresher and crisper than most. There’s a very light sweetness and maltiness, and some floral hop bitterness, but all is light here. The absolute most impressive thing about this beer is that it tastes like real beer, not like the usual sorghum-based gluten-free stuff. My brother has Celiac disease and he says there’s some controversy about how gluten-free this actually is, but I’m hoping that it is and that he can drink this and enjoy real beer again.

12 ounce bottle from the 3300 S State Store. Pours a somewhat cloudy yellow color with a medium white head. A light nose of floral hops and biscuit. Pretty decent, clean, light fruit, big sweet grains. Totally different than other gluten free beers. Quite good in that sense.

Dogbrick (8682) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2012
This beer is a crystal clear pale yellow color with a medium fizzy white head that burns away steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of mildly bitter floral hops, biscuit malt and grass. The finish is short and lightly hoppy. Run of the mill overall.
